Cost Sharing

Cost sharing occurs when any portion of the total cost of a sponsored project is paid for by Princeton or a third party rather than the sponsor. Cost sharing can include the following:

  • Actual cash outlays for items and/or services (travel costs, salaries, materials and supplies, equipment)
  • In-kind non-cash contributions with a direct benefit to the project of which the value can be readily determined and justified

A guide is available to assist in entering cost-share elements into the ERA budget module.
